Present status and validation of HIBRAC
Journal article, 2009
This paper describes in detail the latest version of HIBRAC, a computer code to calculate one-dimensional deterministic particle transport, designed for application in treatment-planning systems when using highly energetic ions for radiotherapy. HIBRAC can calculate dose, dose-average LET (Linear Energy Transfer), track-average LET, fluence and energy distributions as a function of the penetration depth of light ion beams in any solid and fluid target material. The validity of the code is verified against measured dose and fluence distributions. The code shows good agreement for all the systems studied. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
